Project Overview

Welcome to the Concordia Science Journalism Project (CSJP), an endeavour initiated in 2008 to establish a science journalism research and teaching platform in the Department of Journalism at Concordia University.

We see science journalism as a vital endeavour that helps us make better decision about public matters concerning (for example) our health, our environment and our safety. As scientific research accelerates its discoveries, becomes more intertwined with the media and crosses boundaries into politics, law and ethics, it is increasingly important for citizens to have access to digestible scientific content, lest we be left with a lack of public involvement in the governance of science.

The project therefore looks to actively support, better understand and improve the role of science journalism in Canada.
